    Default Urgent! How to cook beef bolar!

    DH has accidentally bought beef bolar and I need to get it in the slow cooker ASAP. Trouble is I have nothing to use as stock, other than a tin of tomatoes or just water. I'm useless at cooking and can't improvise! I also have an onion and a couple of carrots. Help! TIA

    I'm not a slow cooker professional by any means but I'm pretty sure you don't need to add any liquid as the meat will have enough.

    I would season the beef with salt & pepper, cut up the onions and carrots and pop them in with beef then pop it on for 8hrs.

    I know @LoveLivesHere is very knowledgeable.

    Just roast it how you would normally but in the slow cooker. No need for extra liquid if want a dry roast. Or marinate in what you have in the house.

    4 hours on high
    Or
    6 hours on auto
    Or 8 hours on low.

    I always chuck veggies into. We love slow cooked whole onions and potatoes cook in the meat juices and oven baked at the end for a few minutes so they are light and fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside.

    This sounds nice

    Sorry, I hit send and that was too abrupt. I never put anything in with mine but if you want you could sit it on the onions and carrots and put 1/2 c of water in.

    Sounds delish. Just keep an eye on it. It may need just a cup of water in it.
